Wild Feather in Jamaica

So this is me, Kerri, the founder of Wild Feather

Arrrh riggghtt as they say in Jamaica.  So, im not sure if all my Wild Feather followers are aware, but I set up Wild Feather a few years ago, and for one main reason, to give other people who are like me the opportunity to wear some amazing unique clothes.  Ive never been a lover of high street fashion and regularly got frustrated with never finding anything I really liked to wear.  I wouldnt class myself as a true Hippy or a Bohemian chick, im somewhere in between I guess with my own little querky take on the fashion.  After starting my career working with horses, I changed direction completely to join the Rat race in London and worked in the city until I had children.  Life changed lots then, but I still felt l needed something else to stimulate me.  So here you are, Im Kerri, and I founded Wild Feather and I want to share my passion for all things wild and beautiful with you.

TUrning 40 !!

So, for me it’s the Big 40 this spring, and rather than feeling down about turning 40 I decided to embrace it and spend a week in Jamaica with my gorgeous Hubbie to celebrate and unwind but also to finish my rehabilitation from a Hip replacement op in November.  Turning 40 doesn’t worry me, I have no regrets with the path I have followed, and I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life with my family.  Our family comprises of two incredibly scrumptious Boys, two amazing dogs Steve and Roxy, Daisy the Royal Python and two crested geckos, Rango and Tango.  I enjoyed life lots as a youngster, partying, playing, working and travelling and have made amazing friends along the way and now I enjoy the crazy life that comes with being a working family mum.  I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Relaxing in Jamaica

Anyway, I thought id share some of my memories of Jamaica, Whoow, what a beautiful country.  I admit most of the holiday was spend relaxing round the beach in the sun, there was a Pelican that would fly along the shore, majestically diving to catch fish.  He didn’t seem too bothered about the people splashing around in the sea, their faces were a picture.  But we did venture out and visit Dunn’s River Falls, sadly for me I couldn’t climb the falls because of my hip, but Hubbie managed it all the way up and I have to say, it was breath-taking.  The water cascading over the rocks was crystal clear.  The sound of the water was mesmerising almost therapeutic.

Visiting bob marleys home

The main high light for me was visitng Bob Marley Home, and where he now lays to rest. Nine Mile Village at St Annes.  I love Bob marley’s music and what he stands for and it was an honour to stand in his home and sit on his mediation stone, where he found so much inspiration.  Three little Birds was written here, and I stood on the doorstep, it gave me goose bumps.

Three little Birds

was written here, and I stood on the doorstep, it gave me goose bumps.

Rise up this mornin,
Smiled with the risin sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin, (this is my message to you-ou-ou:)

And…. He talks about the single bed in

‘Is This Love’

and I stood next to his bed.

I wanna love you and treat you right
I wanna love you every day and every night
We’ll be together with a roof right over our heads
We’ll share the shelter of my single bed
We’ll share the same room, yeah, oh jah provide the bread

.

Well Jamaica was amazing, and the rest was well needed, but looking forward to this year for Wild Feather, more blogs to come and new stock coming very soon.  Your notice from the images im also a big fan of Wild Feather clothes and wear them all the time, I hope you like them as much as me.
